Admissions 'clout list' outed at Univ. of Illinois

The University of Illinois is re-evaluating its admissions policies after the Chicago Tribune uncovered a "shadow admissions process" for politically connected applicants. "At a time when it's more competitive than ever to get into the University of Illinois, some students with subpar academic records are being admitted after interference from state lawmakers and university trustees," according to stories by Jodi S. Cohen, Stacy St. Clair and Tara Malone, who obtained "clout list" records through state FOI requests.
